See Google's doodle of the day. A tribute to Les Paul.

And here's my Report from the Future: It's still here the next day!!! (It's almost 9 a.m. on Friday, June 10 here, and Fun with Google is still up. An encore, apparently.)

How to play the Beatles on the Google thingy:

Well, maybe the problem is that you were actually trying to achieve something. Like work. I was so thrilled with myself for figuring out CCR's Looking Out My Back Door on that thing that The Kid took the opportunity to steal the answers to his math while I was going Plunk Plunk Plunk. "Doot, doot, doo, sneakin' out the door with the math key ..."

Thurston Moore, among many others, owe their careers to Les Paul.

This is still contemporary and yet still so far ahead of it's time.

He was a revolutionary in the best sense of that word.

edit- Do yourself a favor, check out Les w/ Chet Atkins.

LOL, I saw your header and thought it was pretty apt. Another Report from the Future, As the World Turns: 7 a.m.-ish, Saturday, June 11 and still there! Ringo gets a third day to have it drive her crazy. Maybe they've retired the old Google thing and replaced it eternally with the Les Paul Guitar Doodle ...

Hey Sean - in case you haven't found them for yourself yet you might just want to follow this link to the Les Paul radio shows right here on our very own Internet Archive.

Happy listening!

Not to get off topic, but the Mark Knopfler/Chet Atkins album from the mid to late 80s (?) is some great stuff....

I agree.
Les played with so many people. While I was getting the clip for my post, I noticed a seven minute jam w/ Jeff Beck @ a Billy Squirer concert! Universes collide.

I love his work with the Mills Brothers - really! So smooth and tasteful. I love his take on Hoagy Carmichael's 'Up A Lazy River".
